Windows 10: MS Store apps icons are missing in search results

Discus and support MS Store apps icons are missing in search results in Cortana to solve the problem; I get the same issue as described here... Discussion in 'Cortana' started by Chris Giroux Esq., Sep 7, 2019.

  1. MS Store apps icons are missing in search results


    I get the same issue as described here https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us...-results/3a8ce022-1a91-4041-b953-becb0619932d

    To reproduce it I

    1. Open Start menu
    2. Type an app name (UWP app only)
    3. Look at the search results


    Consistently, UWP apps have no icons in the search results while W32 or x64 apps do.

    I have already attempted to :

    - Flush icon cache (as described in the linked post above)

    - Repair app store

    - SFC /Scannow

    - DISM /Repairhealth

    - Restore/Reset individual apps


    And none of them worked.

    So Please, do not claim this question if you have not experienced this and fixed it yourself.

    Thank you very much

    :)

    App Icons Missing

    Hi Donna,

    Corrupted applications are the possible causes why your program icons are missing after an update. To isolate your issue, we'd like to clarify a few things:

    • When you hover your mouse over your taskbar or Start menu, are you seeing the icons for your apps?
    • Have you tried searching for a specific app and check if it will appear on the search results?

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you repair and reset your applications using the steps shared by Meliton Dec on this

    thread
    about restoring missing apps.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Missing icons for Trusted Microsoft Store Apps in Start Menu search and taskbar

    Help!

    The icons for my Trusted Microsoft Store apps are missing from my start menu when I search for them. They are also missing from my tasbar. I alo notice that icons are missing for files that are associated with these apps are missing.

    Any idea on how to solve this?

    When Using Search

    Searching in the start menu won't show the icon for Trusted Microsoft Store apps. Other app icons are visible in the search.

    In start menu

    The icons for the store apps are visible in the menu when not searching:

    Not visible in taskbar either

    Here you can see that both the Slack and Store app icons aren't visible on the taskbar:

    No file icons for associated apps

    My images are associated with Windows Photos (also a Microsoft Trusted Store App). The aren't showing their icons.

    What I've done so far

    I've been searching Google and the MS fora for hours now. What I've tried so far:

    • Running all Windows Updates
    • Upgrading to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update
    • Clearing the general icon cache by deleting C:\Users\[snip]\AppData\Local\IconCache.db
    • Clearing Explorer icon cache by deleting C:\Users\[snip]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer\IconCache*.db
    • Re-reregistring all Windows store apps with PowerShell by running: Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    • Running Disk Clean Up and choosing Clean Up System Files
    • Running WSReset.exe

    All to no avail. I hope you guys know a solution.
